Torque (Singapore) - - PORSCHE SPECIAL -

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS needs no in­tro­duc­tion, for the most coura­geous and ex­pe­ri­enced drivers who have ded­i­cated their lives to mas­ter­ing the lim­its of per­for­mance al­ready know what it stands for. It is the cho­sen steed of the mo­tor­ing purist.

Since its in­cep­tion, the Porsche 911 has been the defin­ing bench­mark for sports cars, and the 911 GT3 RS sits at its apex. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is forged from the fires of com­pe­ti­tion and an in­sa­tiable ob­ses­sion for con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment. It is a thor­ough­bred sports car for un­com­pro­mis­ing rac­ing en­thu­si­asts.

To the driver, only the most ex­cep­tional lev­els of pre­ci­sion that can de­liver the most scin­til­lat­ing ex­pe­ri­ences are con­sid­ered ac­cept­able. At the beat­ing, sear­ing and scream­ing heart of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS sits the most pow­er­ful nat­u­rally as­pi­rated en­gine ever ap­plied to a Porsche.

Ev­ery ele­ment of this flat-6 en­gine, from the pis­tons to the small­est bolt, has been ma­chined to the finest spec­i­fi­ca­tion to en­able oth­er­worldly per­for­mance.

They are per­fectly matched to the ra­zor-sharp char­ac­ter of this track-pre­pared sports car. The 4-litre flat-6 sings a fe­ro­cious 9000rpm con­certo, de­liv­er­ing 20hp more than the 911 GT3 and its si­b­ling, the 911 GT3 Cup. A sin­gu­lar pur­pose, with a ges­ta­tion in­tri­cately in­ter­twined with mo­tor­sport, de­fines the 911 GT3 RS. On top of proven tech­nolo­gies such as Var­i­oCam al­ready seen in se­ries pro­duc­tion Porsches, the 911 GT3 RS is built to with­stand the rigours of the race­track.

In­no­va­tion is in­her­ent in the 911 GT3 RS, with tech­nolo­gies such as dry-sump lu­bri­ca­tion, which uses a to­tal of seven suc­tion stages to give the car the ca­pac­ity to tol­er­ate im­mense lat­eral and lon­gi­tu­di­nal ac­cel­er­a­tions.

Ev­ery bit of the rest of the car ex­udes a sim­i­lar ethos of set­ting the bench­mark for per­for­mance and pre­ci­sion. An aero­dy­namic de­sign, ob­tained from the 911 Turbo’s body, of­fers in­cred­i­ble lev­els of sta­bil­ity and agility. To en­hance the 911 GT3 RS’ ethe­real abil­i­ties, its light­weight con­struc­tion has been al­lied with max­i­mum down­force – 144kg of it at 200km/h. The PDK gear­box in the 911 GT3 RS has had its con­trol sys­tems im­proved so that it shifts faster. The tyres have also been fur­ther de­vel­oped. Noth­ing has been spared the scru­tiny of the Porsche mo­tor­sport team, which re­mains de­ter­minedly fo­cused on rais­ing the bar. Some­thing spe­cial hap­pens when you tell peo­ple that they should be the best. That their mis­sion is to cre­ate some­thing rep­re­sent­ing the very pin­na­cle of achieve­ment. In­deed be­ing “good enough” is never enough for Porsche. To al­ways re­main ahead, there can be no com­pro­mises. No cor­ners shall be cut. And no con­ces­sions are to be made, even when there are com­pet­ing ob­jec­tives. When the very best en­gi­neers in the world set out to make the very best sports car, the re­sult is magic.

The re­sult is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
